Maryland: Director of Federal Prisons busted for DWI; nearly ran into police vehicle


From The Washington Post

The Director of the Federal Bureau of Prisons was arrested and charged with DUI and related counts in late February after an Anne Arundel County police officer spotted him driving erratically near his home in Annapolis, according to a police report.
Harley Lappin, 55, was pulled over Feb. 26 after an officer watched him nearly swerve into a police speed-enforcement trailer on Arundel on the Bay Road and a parked car on Headwater Road, according to the police report. Lappin’s eyes were bloodshot, his speech was slurred and his breath smelled of alcohol, the report said. In field sobriety tests, he was unable to walk a straight line taking heel-to-toe steps, and he could not maintain his balance standing on one foot, according to the report.
The incident was first reported by Main Justice.
Late last week, Lappin announced that he would retire as director of the Bureau of Prisons effective May 7. ….MORE
